Researchers at the University of Chicago and Duke invite you to apply for the 2nd annual Collaborative for Innovation in Data & Measurement in Aging (CIDMA) Institute, held at the University of Chicago, September 13-14, 2023 (opening evening reception on September 12). The goal of CIDMA is to identify, design, conduct and assess innovations in data collection and measurement within longitudinal research on aging and disseminate the findings of these assessments broadly.

The 2nd annual CIDMA Institute will bring together researchers and data collection professionals for a two-day interactive workshop focused on identifying ongoing challenges in data collection and measurement and brainstorming potential innovations to address these challenges. In addition, researchers leading the initial CIDMA assessment projects will present preliminary results and lead a discussion on opportunities for future applications. Participants are encouraged to bring challenges from their own research to share with the group. Learn more about the Institute and apply to attend here.

The faculty organizers for the institute are Kathleen Cagney, PhD, University of Michigan, Joe Hotz, PhD, Duke University, and David Meltzer, MD, PhD, University of Chicago.
